Settings for Sony Dsc V1

I have a sony Dsc V1. A spotting scope Giant 20-60 X 80 from Seben.
I got an adaptor prepared from LCE Plymouth.
I still have problems to let them work together.
Could someone suggest any proper settings for my camera?
In attach a pigeon digiscoped 25m away.

can you be more specific, What zoom was the scope set at, and the settings you used on the camera, are you able to use other zoom settings without vignetting. Might then be able to help. Ernie

Thenk you for your reply!
The zoom of the scope is set to 20X. When I go with the camera to 4X I do not have vignetting.

I use a Sony DSCV1 on the following settings: Aperture priority; ISO100 (usually); full zoom; auto white balance; sharpness, saturation and contrast all set at normal; autofocus; multi metering mode; fine quality; 5.0 M image size. I am not familiar with your particular scope, but the above settings work reasonably well for me on both an Opticron ES 80 and a Swarovski ATS 80 HD.
